lonewolf--I've taken psychology classes, but I guess I'm still interested in learning. My character does get nervous when someone talks about going to a mall or riding a subway.

cornflake--She's most afraid of getting trampled. I've read some articles on mobs like that, and frankly it's quite scary. She knows it's irrational and will sometimes force herself into positions to face her fear, but then get nervous.

lianna--Thanks for your input. First-hand is always the best research.

So would everyone say her fear of crowds/getting trampled is irrational?
